           Summary: Use contact name from Address Book on reply if
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Compose Window
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: clawsmail at kushwaha.com

People write all sorts of names in their address books. Sometimes it's just
first name, sometimes it echoes the email address, sometimes it is a nickname.
But the email address is always the same.

So when replying, if the email address exists in our Address Book, Claws-Mail
should have the option (and ability) to replace the displayed name with what
exists in the user's Address Book.

For example, an email received is:
 From: "Fortin, Peter (PMP, OVG, LPA)" <pete at example.com>
 CC: "'Friends > Nana'" <nana at example.com>, joe at example.com

If the email addresses exist in the address book as:
 Peter Fortin <pete at example.com>
 Nana Smithers <nana at example.com>
 Joe Mullock <joe at example.com>

Then, when replying-all to the message, it should look so:
 To: Peter Fortin <pete at example.com>
 CC: Nana Smithers <nana at example.com>
 CC: Joe Mullock <joe at example.com>

Will make things very clean IMHO.
